I have always been amazed by all the lifestyle behind the incredible Fuente family. The Opus line almost became an addiction for some and a myth for others.
Not my everyday cigar, as I normally do not spend over $15 in new world cigars, but I thought I would give it a try again.

El Rey Del Mundo , translated the king of the world, was created in 1882 with a very modest vision. Since then, the marca has produced some of the finest habanos on the market.
Easily recognisable by its creamy texture, El Rey Del Mundo tends to develop very elegant blend with a massive ageing potential.
As stated on Instagram (don't forget to follow Cigar Inspector on the social medias), I was craving for an aged El Rey Del Mundo. This one isn't very old, but I believe after 17 years one can mention it is an aged cigar! Should I mention the incredible price? €14 from La Casa Del Habanos Knokke!!!

Cigar Review – Vegas Robaina Unicos

Origin : CubaVegas Robaina
Format : Piramides
Size : 156 x 52
Ring : 52
Hand-Made
Price : ~$25 each

Vegas Robaina Unicos is to me the perfect choice for every Montecristo No.2 lovers interesting to discover new cigars.
Vegas Robaina was created in 1997 after the famous Robaina family known for growing the finest wrapper in the San Luis area in Pinar del Region, in Cuba. At the origin of the creation of the Marca, Don Alejandro, the old man and true legend in the world of cigar was looking after the family plantation. This year Vegas robin celebrates its 20th anniversary and I am happy to share a review of one of the most interesting piramides vitola on the market ( to my opinion).

Cohiba Talisman EL 2017 – Launch Evening

There are many new exciting releases this year. The new Cohiba 2017 limited edition, called Talisman is one of them. This big size cigar (154 X 54) may become another big collector items.

Like every year, Habanos S.A. will host a launch evening to promote the new Limited edition cigars. Last year the Romeo y Julieta Capuletos was presented first in the Italian city of Verona, organised by the country's exclusive distributor Diademas S.P.A.
A very limited number of guests including Habanos Specialists, representatives of Smoking Clubs, Habanos Exclusive Distributors from other countries, media and influencers are usually part of that special event.

This year the Cohiba Talisman will most probably be launched on the land of Hunters and Frankau. Exclusive distributor for the United Kingdom. If the city of London is almost confirmed to be presenting the new gold and black double banded cigar, the date is a total mystery. I would guess not before October or November...

Let's see if the inspector was right or wrong...

Happy Smokes!

Here the humblest of all Habanos cigars, in many European cigar shops at a wonderfully low price, but in fact a consistent good smoke giving extraordinary value for money. José L. Piedra is one of the globally best-selling of all Cuban cigar brands, thanks to the price point but also because smokers often find, 'Hey, José, you are ok!'

Introduction
Trinidad has always been one of my all-time favourite cigar. Just thinking of the old band fundadores (El Laguito factory production from 1998 to 2003) gives me goose bumps.
The story sets the creation of the brand in 1969 as a different blend used for diplomatic purposes. Only in 1998 a current production Trinidad was release to the public. This production was set in El Laguito (Cohiba factory), for the famous long and thin habanos: Fundadores. In 2003, the brand moved out from its mother factory to the province to grow the production.
Trinidad is known for very smooth and elegant blend with a slow and balanced development mainly characterized by its creamy texture.
